Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Surf/Punk outfit Ratking are making some serious noise in the scene locally and abroad, despite being around for just a year.

Formed from the ashes of numerous Perth bands, Ratking have truly honed in on their unique brand of Surf/Hardcore.

In this short amount of time, Ratking have successfully released their debut EP ‘Wastelander’, which received positive reviews from numerous webzines, Triple J presenters and international webzines and blogs, whilst supporting national and international acts including Comeback Kid, In Hearts Wake, Spit Syndicate & The Love Junkies.

The lads from the west have since released their latest single ‘Girt’, which has received airplay on Triple J, whilst scoring the band a nomination for the Short, Fast, Loud Top 100 Release of 2014.

As well as developing an extremely loyal local fan base, the lads from Perth have toured internationally throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia.

‘Girt’ is available for download on Bandcamp, and is taken from their debut album ‘Commonwealth’.
